Direct Seed and Cover Crop Project

There is an old adage that states: "Grow where you are planted - make the most of what you are given, be positive in your adventures of life and always try to bring happiness to others along your way".... Today as I was checking in our Direct Seed drill I saw this and I had to smile... these little 'plants' are trying to fulfill the measure of their purpose in life. Grow where they are planted and try to be the best they can be.
